A Visual Fiesta of Fun and Sun | #waihibeachsummersnap

What a sizzling summer it’s been, and our Snap Summer Photo Competition certainly captured the heat. With 180 plus incredible entries, the public had the tough task of choosing a winner by hitting the ‘Like’ button on Facebook.

From sandy toes to sunset glows, every photo shared told a unique Waihī Beach story. However, there could only be one winner and Elly Cossey was crowned the champion. Her mother Tina Keeys, captured the mesmerising sunrise photo of Elly and her daughter Poppy during a camping trip, and stole the spotlight with 182 Facebook ‘Likes’.

Congratulations Elly, on winning a Waihī Beach summer ‘swag pack’ worth $400. This included a retro Waihī Beach cooler,
a $150 Flatwhite gift voucher and a Waihī Beach hooded towel.

Thanks to everyone who entered and/or voted. It was such a tough competition with so many amazing entries.
Keep snapping and sharing those Waihī Beach memories. Tag #discoverwaihibeach
